A mother-of-two jumped 13,000 feet out of a plane to raise money for a cancer charity on Wednesday.

Oruj Defoite, 39, of Holdenhurst Avenue, Finchley, completed her skydive at Hinton Airfield in Brackley, raising more than £450 for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care in Barnet.

She said: “Surprisingly I didn’t feel at all scared.  It was just the biggest rush I’ve ever felt.

Talking about why she wanted to raise money for Cherry Lodge, she said: “I was really impressed with the work of the charity because they provide help for the families and carers of cancer sufferers as well as the sufferers themselves.”
